If you love WhatsApp?s popular messaging service but hate its bare-bones interface, you better take a look at what WhatsApp Plus has in store.
What is WhatsApp Plus?
WhatsApp Plus, or ?WhatsApp+,? is a modified and handy replacement for WhatsApp messaging application. It offers plenty of customization features that you won?t find in the official version. The app is developed by ?rafalense,? an XDA Developers Senior Member.
With WhatsApp Plus, you can personalize the app?s interface all you want. Once installed, you can find these features by going to the Menu and tapping on the PLUS option. It?s possible to adjust font colors and sizes, change wallpapers, alter the notification icon, and even edit the interface?s design via downloadable themes.
Tons of visual changes can be made using this modified app and this space isn?t enough to list them all. However, the newest version of WhatsApp Plus sports significant UI improvements including support for group chats of up to 100 participants and bug fixes for devices running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
How to install WhatsApp Plus
Fair warning from The Bitbag: This application is made by a third-party developer and is not supported or endorsed by WhatsApp itself. As such, it has not undergone Google Play?s or App Store?s software scrutiny. Installing it means you understand the risks.
In order for WhatsApp Plus to work, you?ll have to uninstall the official app. But before that, make sure that you create a backup of all your chats first by heading to Menu > Settings > Chat > Save conversations. Once done, uninstall the app, temporarily allow the installation of apps from Unknown Sources from within your phone?s Settings, and download the WhatsApp Plus installer from here.
The first requirement is a jailbroken iOS device. As mentioned, you also need to backup your conversations first before installing WhatsApp Plus on your iPhone. After that, head to Cydia, search for WhatsApp Plus and install it on your device. Proceed with the phone number verification and you?re good to go.
